A magic Christmas in Poffabro!
Have you ever been to Poffabro?
It is one of the most beautiful villages of Friuli Venezia Giulia!
It is located in the province of Pordenone in the Colvera valley. Its name means “Prato dei Fabbri”.
Poffabro is characterized by stone houses and above all by wooden balconies that give a magical atmosphere to the town.
The houses were born between 1500 and 1600, have multiple floors and are connected by narrow wooden stairs. Here stress does not exist!
Christmas in Poffabro
Poffabro during the Christmas period, becomes magical…. in fact, in every house in the village there is a crib.
Look at the courtyards, look at the windows and let yourself be carried away by the Christmas carols that will guide you throughout the visit…. Throughout the country there are the wooden silhouettes of the peasants who keep you company during the walk and they seem to tell you their stories, life in the fields, the slow times of the mountains …
When dusk falls, the country becomes magical and a very special atomosphere is created, a little muffled that gives you security.
For a sweet break
After visiting the cribs you can stop in the center of Poffabro and take a good hot chocolate, or a good hot apple juice, in the village bar.
What to see besides the village?
My advice, in addition to seeing the village, is to go and visit the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria.
It is located in Taviela (to get there from the Poffabro car park, go up the main road, 10 minutes on foot).
The monastery was created in 1998 at the behest of Mons. Sennen Corrà, who asked Mother Abbadessa of the monastery of San Cipriano in Trieste to also have a Benedictine presence in Poffabro.
The request was taken into consideration and it was decided to create the monastery where once there was a holiday home of the diocese. Today, there are 8 nuns in the monastery who can accommodate pilgrims for a few days.
In addition, another thing to see in Poffabro is certainly the former Dairy in the center of the town square, today it is the seat of the museum of the Friulian Dolomites Park. Here you can see the tools for processing cheese.
Where to sleep?
In Poffabro, even if it is a small village, there are many places to sleep! Find the best offers!
